Dan Kaminsky of DoxPara Research has posted the presentation Black OPs of TCP/IP 2005 (PowerPoint) which he made at Black Hat 2005 which includes his probes of the global Internet DNS infrastructure. The results demonstrate a number of weaknesses in the DNS. In particular, almost 10% of the DNS 2.5 million name servers are potentially subject to cache poisoning which permits hijacking network traffic. Also see the related article on CNET.
